Occasionally my husband travels to China for business. I love hearing about his travels to other countries because the only international traveling I have done is to Canada. So when he comes back home he shares his experiences with the kids and I. Things like the food, the lifestyle, etc. I guess you can say I am living vicariously through him in his travel experiences.
When time permits he likes to stroll through a market to pick up a few souvenir trinkets to bring back for the kids and I. I wanted to share a few of the trinkets he recently brought back.
Look at all the sweets! Can you spot the Chips Ahoy and Snickers? Honestly I was reluctant to try some of these items but after tasting a few they are amazing! Cookies with honey and caramel, many of these goodies taste very Americanized.
My husband has become a pro at using chopsticks as they are the main source of utensils in China. He thought it would be fun to buy the kids Minion chopsticks which are for the beginner, once experienced the Minion comes off and the chopsticks separate. It is neat to see my 2 year old learn how to eat with chopsticks!
Chinese are famous for their tea’s. So he brought back a few different tea’s for us to try out!
I bet you are wondering what on earth this is! It is sugar cane. Yep my husband got stopped in customs with this one. They questioned him what it was, I do not blame them! You cut off the ends and the outside and then suck the sugar out. My kids look forward to doing this, especially since we live in Florida and sugar cane is grown here. We have never consuming it before!
He also brought me a silk scarf and a few other articles of clothing for himself like Tommy Bahama shirts that you could not purchase here in the states for less than $100!
Interesting bunch of goodies. Have you ever traveled internationally and if so what neat souvenirs have you brought back?
